Ratio Selector

Manual gear ratio selector Component

The Ratio Selector component outputs an element of a ratio vector parameter based on the input index (gear) number. This component can be used to create simple ideal manual transmissions.

Equation

The equation defining this component is simply

$r=T\left(i+{i}_{0}\right)\phantom{\rule[-0.0ex]{0.0em}{0.0ex}}$

where r is the output ratio, T() is the ratio data (a row vector parameter), and i is the input integer index. Also ${i}_{0}$ is the optional index offset.
